Our History

With a vision to empower the youth in the Information Communication Technology (ICT) age, Informatics Institute of Computer Studies (IICS), now known as Informatics Institute of Technology (IIT), was established in Colombo, Sri Lanka in 1990.

Dr. Gamini Wickramasinghe, Chairman of the Informatics Group is a man with a vision who wanted to support the educational sector. At the time Sri Lanka was facing social upheavals, causing state-run universities to close for longer periods of time thus bringing academic activities to a complete standstill.
